If you're looking for the right amount of northshore flavor and comforts of home all with a short 6 mile drive to Grand Marais, this is it! We stayed one night, but would have stayed longer if we had the time. The managers, Lee and Scott are awesome. Friendly, personable and willing to do what they can to make your... More

My husband's family has visited Grand Marais annually for over five decades. Through the years we've stayed at various places in the area, at times running into errors with our reservations and other customer service issues. From the time we booked till the day we left Lee was a dillegent host. Amongst about 20 of us, we occupied 7 units.... More

I stayed twice in the fall of 2014, once with a girlfriend and once with my husband. My husband and I arrived after dark with spectacular waves hitting the rocky shoreline. We woke to enjoy the park like grounds. Our "suite" had been recently renovated and everything was very clean and comfortable. The distance from Grand Marais is perfect. The... More

Three of us headed to Thomsonite Beach for a girls' weekend--we really enjoyed our time. We headed into Grand Marais, shopped the Trading Post and Ben Franklin. We then went to the Gunflint Tavern and had the most wonderful lunch. It was a clear sunny day, and we had a table right by the window--the lake view was beautiful, and... More

This was our first stay at Thompsonite for a Valentine's winter weekend getaway. It was just perfect. The owner is very nice and more than accommodating. We were in unit 3 and while nothing luxurious, it was very clean and had everything we needed. And yes, the winter sunrises and sunsets from those gliding chairs make for a perfect way... More
